A 12-year-old boy charged with sexually assaulting six teenage girls is due to appear in court next month.

The suspect, who cannot be named due to his age, was bailed after appearing at Highbury Corner Youth Court in Islington yesterday.

He was arrested on February 7 in connection with assaults on three 14-year-olds, a 15-year-old, and two 16-year-olds between October 13 and December 21 last year.

Most of the victims were followed after they left buses in Hertford Road in Enfield and assaulted.

The boy is due to appear at the same court on March 25.
